DePuy Hip Lawsuit Pile On

Everybody wants in. You can’t do a search on Google without finding 20 lawyers looking for recalled DePuy hip replacement cases. It is pathetic. (Oh, now that you mention it, you can find some pandering from us here.)

Anyway, the fund that manages health benefits for several towns in New Jersey has filed a class-action lawsuit against DePuy Orthopaedics over its ASR hip implant recall. The fund accuses DePuy (Johnson & Johnson) of fraud and unjust enrichment, alleging DePuy knew its hip implants had problems and left them on the market, ostensibly hoping no one would notice (no one did for a while, actually).

In other words, their lawsuit mimics the language of virtually every DePuy hip replacement lawsuit.
